In this collection of both previously published and new writers for teens, Carver has assembled a collection of 15 stories that probe the deepest, darkest recesses of the mind and the little known. Each original and never-before-published story, although different, attempts to scare and possibly terrify its reader. All of the authors are Canadian.
With the caution that these stories contain references to cannibalism, child abuse, domination, and masturbation, they can be read and enjoyed by an older teen and adult audience. For the most part, the subject matter of the stories is predictable. For example, there are ghosts in "The Dead of Winter" by Barbara Haworth-Attard and "September 12, 2063" by Martine Leavitt, werewolves in "Graveyard Studies" by Sylvo Frank, cannibalism in "Goth Pate" by Carolyn Beck and "Bogeyman" by Rob Morphy, and stories of revenge in "The Yearbook" by Kathy Stinson and "Revenge" by Karleen Bradford.
